This is one of the free excellent videos on Educator.com; the rest require a subscription fee. 'Dr. Carleen Eaton will briefly cover the history of algebra, the origin of the word algebra and why it is so powerful compared to arithmetic in solving re...al world problems. You will then cover basic definitions such as variable, algebraic expression, and operations. The lecture concludes with four examples where you will convert an algebraic expression from a sentence.'[more]

This is 1 of 4 videos I custom made for an educator in California for an experimental 1-week video homework program. I have only edited the beginning and ending titles. Although not designed for the general public, you may find them useful.
This vi...deo provides a quick general math review of concepts needed to do well in Algebra 1. Covers: Order of Operations, Fraction Arithmetic, Basic Algebraic Concepts and Terminology, Converting Verbal Phrases to Algebraic Expressions and other Miscellaneous Math Concepts. (25:17)[more]

This is a humorous look at the mistakes students commonly make in Algebra. The instructor uses voice-overs with vintage video clips to make his point. (05:02)

This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on what is
algebra, what are variables, constants, coefficients, terms, and
expressions. The tutor explains the use of proper notation, how to
combine like terms, find the negation of an a...lgebraic expression, how
to evaluate an expression (by hand and by using your calculator), and
finally, there is a VERY detailed section on how to translate English
phrases into algebraic expressions. (11:22)[more]

Lesson on introduction to algegra part 2. Watch part 1 and 2 before watching this part. Larry continues with solving examples of problems using multiplication on a whiteboard.
